I can get you under budget with CDT CL-61 comps from www.thezeb.com on sale for under $150 each. Or move up to the CDT HD series.

Oh and I forgot...
Keep your eyes out for reviews on elemental designs new components. They just started shipping and people should have them and posting reviews in a few days. They are around $300.

I don't know if eD can be trusted anymore. Their fiasco with the pre-order sale...

And this info is based on...?

And what pre-order fiasco? It was ONLY this forum that blew the whole thing out of proportion. It was a preorder for foks sake! Thats why you get a good deal on it! Because things can go wrong and delay stuff! Again, it was ONLY this forum who had the kind of response to it as you did, now making ED seem unreputable, completely untrue. The EDi's ARE shipping NOW.

im a cdt dealer and have asked cdt myself. ed even states on there site that cdt is the builder of them, but kinda bad mouths cdt toward the end. they say u get a longer warranty over the cdt;s when in fact cdt has an extra year! For the same price i would much rather get the cdt hd series with a longer warranty and a set that can take more power from a company that is very easy to deal with.

Yes they are build by CDT but what about the motor is lesser grade?
And power handling is not an exact science, with the SAME speaker, two companies may rate them differently. The lower you rate the power, the less you will see come back blown. On top of that, ED has been known to underrate their drivers.

they do not use the cdt hd motor its a step below. It is a fact that it is a modded hd mid but to a lesser grade.

I would take a set of classic CDTs for $150 over Hex any day of the week. I've heard both side by side, and the hex are for those who like their ears to bleed. Very very harsh speakers.

someone must have had them set up terribly then, the HEX are the nicest speakers Ive ever heard, If only I could afford them, Ive never heard anyone who has ever heard them say anything bad about them except that they are expensive. I also like the M6 series componets, but I think the HEX is the best made.

one of my co-workers recently purchase 6.5" hex components for his truck. i listened to his setup and i too found the highs to be harsh. he compared his setup with my cdt cl-61 components and was pissed on how much money he spent for something that didn't sound as good as my cdt's.

Well there is no doubt the Hexs have the potential to sound better. Thats just a fact of the two sets. But, of course, its all in the install.

I've listened to the CDT classics, EFCFs and Hexes and the Hexes were my least favorite. If you like ear piercing highs, then maybe the diamonds are for you, but if you want a smoother sound, then the CDTs just blow away the diamonds, and cost nearly 1/2. My friend with the Hexes also agrees the the CDT EFCFs sound much better.

the diamond audio hexes are nice wit the silk tweet but IMO lack on the midbass. for the price u spend on the diamond u could get the cdt hd's and take them to school:)

if you guys are ever in NC go to Appalachian Audio, they have some HEX's set up right, you can here them in the store or in the owners RSX. If you dont like them then thats your thing, but I think you should hear them set up right before you diss them.
